Apply for the Shadowing Scheme

Mature students

**Applications for the shadowing scheme for mature students are now open!**

The CUSU Shadowing Scheme brings UK students from schools without a tradition of top university entry to Cambridge for three days.

Prospective students come to Cambridge and spend time with a current undergraduate, studying a subject that you are interested in, who you 'shadow'.

The idea is to give those who have little or no experience of university a taste of student life at Cambridge, in real time, with real people. We especially welcome applications from those who would be the first in their immediate family to attend university.

The dates for this year's scheme are November 8th - 10th 2018.

Note: Mature students are those who will be aged 21 or over at the start of their degree.

If you will not be 21 or over at the start of your degree, please apply for the Shadowing Scheme using the sign up form found here.

The deadline for applications is October 14th 2018.
